Depression. It's that sinking feeling that you'll never be enough, that you can't get better, and that joy is an emotion that is only in your memories.
Are you tired of dealing with the same frustrations over, and over, and over again? It’s like trying to climb out of a well, except you’re drowning, and you can’t get a grip on the walls because they’re so slick. And, even if you could get a grip, what would the point be? There’s no way for you to grab onto anything. There are no steps. There are no rocks sticking out to get your footing. There’s only darkness.
Sure, if you look up, and if you squint just hard enough, you can see the light. But it’s so far away.
And no matter what you do, you just can’t reach it.
There are a lot of emotional issues that can find a corner in our heart. And they just refuse to die. With time, these issues can form into an emotional tumor, leaving us feeling broken, alone and just dead inside. Then, they start creating problems at home, in our relationships at work, and even in our relationship with God. But you don’t have to keep living in the well. That small light that you see a the top? It’s not out of reach. With the support of therapy, there’s a hand reaching down to pull you out.
Online Christian Counseling for depression can help with:
- Getting your concentration back
- Finding joy and enthusiasm for life again
- Gaining self-respect
- Seeing your true worth and value
- Finding a will to make things better
- Getting encouragement
The problem is, most people don’t get it.They just end up saying a bunch of ridiculous nonsense like, “But you don’t LOOK depressed!”, or “You’re just not trying hard enough to be happy.”
If all it took was trying a little harder, you wouldn’t be depressed anymore.
Cast off that load of crap and give yourself permission to feel bad. Really, it’s okay. But you don’t have to stay there, because we’ll work together to find a path forward. I’m not saying it’ll be easy, but you don’t have to go through it by yourself.
What’s the point of even trying? How will it work when so many things haven’t in the past?
Because this time it’s different. The work that we’ll do together is deeper. It’s raw. And it’s real. We’ll discover the patterns you’ve fallen into and the underlying beliefs that maybe you’ve never uncovered before. Then, we’ll find real, concrete, practical tools to change those things to get actual results.
We’ll look at God’s truths to discover the way He sees us. You’ll learn to really process the things you’re feeling. Feelings aren’t a bad thing. But sometimes what those feelings tell us and what’s really happening are two different things. Together, we’ll discuss ways we can make those feelings line up with reality.
If you’re here, chances are you’re at the end of your rope.
Maybe it’s that you’re just not sure why you feel angry all the time. Or, perhaps it’s that someone has does something to you that you just can’t get past. You’ll find out how to:
- Find hope for the future
- Gain control over those difficult emotions
- Move forward with peace, forgiveness and joy
What to expect.
Chances are it took a lot of courage just to muster up the ability to start looking for options. Now, maybe you’re not even sure where to start. If you’re ready, you can schedule an appointment right here. But chances are you’re still unsure. And that’s okay. Counseling isn’t a dirty word. And it’s not a sign of weakness to reach out for help. It’s a sign that you’re strong enough to know you need to make a change.
Getting to a counselor’s office is half the battle. That’s why I offer counseling services exclusively online. I’ve eliminated the nerves of getting in the car, finding the place, and trying to find a parking space while making it into the office on time for your appointment. If you have a webcam and can click a link, you can come to the session, no matter where you are.
When we connect, you’ll find a judgement-free-zone. Some people have made mistakes, and some have been through really, REALLY bad crap in their life. That’s okay. It’s not my place to judge what’s happened to you or what you’ve done; it’s my job to help you get your life back. You’re in a safe place to share what’s on your heart.
How it works.
To get started, simply schedule an appointment online. After scheduling, I’ll send you an email with some information to complete before your appointment starts. At your first appointment, we’ll talk about the challenges you’ve faced that have led you to seeking help, as well as the goals you’d like to accomplish.
Next, I’ll ask a few questions about what you’ve tried so far, including what’s been helpful and what has made you feel worse. We’ll talk about support systems you have in place, if any, and we’ll begin to develop a plan to get you on the right track.
Because everyone is different, I can’t guarantee how many sessions you’ll need to come for, but I start out meeting weekly with clients. Most clients come weekly until they start meeting their goals, and then we move to bi-weekly appointments, followed by monthly appointments, and then at the end we’ll schedule a three-month follow-up. Usually, I see people for 18-20 sessions between weekly, bi-weekly and monthly appointments.
My goal is to help you get to feeling better, so therapy doesn’t have to be a long-term commitment.
